energy performance

On Tuesday 19 December 2017, the Estonian presidency reached a provisional agreement with the European Parliament on a revised directive on the energy performance of buildings. The outcome of the trilogue will be presented to EU ambassadors on December 20, with the final analysis and approval of the agreement expected to take place at the beginning of 2018.

Numerous studies and surveys indicate that typically-installed HVAC equipment operate inefficiently and waste considerable energy due to varied installation errors (faults) such as improper refrigerant charge, incorrect airflow, oversized equipment, and leaky ducts. This article summarises the results of a large United States (U.S.) experimental/analytical study of the impact that different faults have on the performance of an air-source, single-speed heat pump (ASHP) in a typical U.S. single-family house.

La ventilation influence le calcul du niveau E dans les réglementations régionales sur la performance énergétique des bâtiments (PEB). La présente Infofiche examine les possibilités de diminution de ce niveau, tant pour le résidentiel que pour le non-résidentiel. Elle s'adresse au responsable du calcul PEB et à l'auteur de projet, mais également aux entrepreneurs concernés par la ventilation afin de les aider à convaincre sur le choix de solutions énergétiquement efficaces.   Sommaire de cette infofiche:
